Abstract:

Determination of residual solvents and moisture is an important feature of quality control analysis in the production of propellant casting powders and cordite compositions. The method described in this paper is based on a vacuum distillation - gas chromatographic procedure using 2-methoxyethanol as carrier solvent. It is applicable to the determination of dichloromethane, ethyl acetate, or any combination of diethyl ether, acetone, ethanol, benzene, and water in casting powders and propellants. Author
